    we are going to WDW on july19-25 This our first time stay on site at fort wild cabin I have a 5 year old which will have his bday on 23 and 2 year girl im scared that it will be to busy wit young kids could you help wit tips, must do, maybe a schedule


    First off, yes, it will be busy. But you will be fine. With young kids (mine are of a similar age to yours) you simply have to remember to pace yourself.

    Here is where I would go;

    • July 19: Arrival Day: RELAX
    • July 20: Magic Kingdom
    • July 21: Animal Kingdom
    • July 22: Hollywood Studios
    • July 23: Epcot
    • July 24: Magic Kingdom
    • July 25: Magic Kingdom
    If you have time to go to a park on the 19th, make it another day at the Magic Kingdom. You will always have more to do there. And if you have Park hopper options on your tickets I would make the afternoon part of your Animal Kingdom day another Magic Kingdom visit. There simply is more for your kids there than at any other park!

    • Come back to your cabin EVERY afternoon for quiet time/nap time, and maybe a pool visit. This will keep everyone well rested and refreshed.
    • Pace yourself. Arrive early in the morning, but don't feel the need to run the entire park. Find a land and focus on it.

    That is about all I can fit into an answer for now. Write me back with more specific questions and we can work out some ideas for his birthday, something for little sis to make her feel special too, and anything else that has you concerned!

    You are going to do great. Don't worry!

    Have a magical vacation!
